About Us

Rene Poerner started selling Warren & Brown Torque Wrenches back in 1965. He then met the owners of Norbar Torque Tools in 1968, and from that date became the Norbar distributor in Southern Africa. Over the next couple of years, he acquired some of the other agencies that we represent today. Rene worked for various wholesalers during this time.

David Poerner joined the company in 1985 as a sales representative. In 1993 Rene and David purchased the company and together with 3 staff members grew the company to what it is today. It now has 14 staff members.
